Binary Matter I
During this summer term Industrial Design students developed positions on computational design and examined its impacts on aesthetics and society. Due to Corona restrictions the discourse was held mostly online and non-physical. The students gained insight into digital design strategies by delving into Grasshopper, a Rhino 3D tool for parametric design.
Within a short design sprint the students created a series of objects that have one thing in common: holes. When is a hole a hole? How holey can an object be? The results are presented in the Shutdown Gallery, a web-based 3D exhibition space.
The work process in this digital semester was documented in film by the students in the form of desktop documentaries.
